Abstract

This special three hour special session involves a presentation and critical discussion of the role of the Court of Auditors as one of the main monitoring bodies of the European Union through its financial and performance audits of EU policies. This overview is followed by a presentation and critical discussion of the Court of Auditors recent performance audit of the EU’s Macroeconomic Imbalance Procedure (MIP) as an important example of the Court’s activities. The MIP itself has been widely criticised by academics and member state governments and thus the Court of Auditors performance audit was produced at an opportune moment to influence current debates about the Procedure’s future.
